Electrical Safety – Important Information For Landlords

Electrical Safety – Important Information For Landlords

As a landlord, you have a statutory obligation to ensure that the electrical equipment, supplies, plugs and sockets in the property you let are safe (Low Voltage Electrical Equipment Regulations 1989 / Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 and The Plugs and Sockets etc (Safety) Regulations 1994).

Whilst it is not currently mandatory to have electrical equipment checked each year, you must ensure that any electrical equipment supplied with the property is safe, made in line with safety measures and meets safety objectives.

The best way of doing this is for regular checks to be carried out by suitably qualified contractors. Making instruction booklets available to tenants is also a good way of demonstrating that you have provided information so that equipment can be used safely.

If you would like us to assist you by arranging an electrical safety check at your property please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Prices start at £151.20 for a one bedroom apartment.
